Martha is twelve - and very different from other kids, because of her parents. Strict members of a religious group - the Brethren - their rules dominate Martha's life. And one rule is the most important of all: she must never ever invite anyone home. If she does, their shameful secret - Abomination - could be revealed. But as Martha makes her first real friend in Scott, a new boy at school, she begins to wonder. Is she doing the right thing by helping to keep Abomination a secret? And just how far will her parents go to prevent the truth from being known?

I read it myself (an adult)
Abomination 9780440863625
5 stars
I liked Marthas character, from the outside i too would view her very weird but getting to know her perspective i find that her character is likeable, she is strong and is able to stand up for herself even though she gets bullied and is brought up on strong strong set of values. Her friendship formation with Scott was nice.
This book is like a mystery because i got curious on what exactly they were referring to as 'abomination'. This book is a real page turner, didnt take me long to finish.
